My issue with the .380 ACP is that the ammunition cost is more than the 9mm. Unless I'm going to get a "micro .380," I might as well get a 9mm in any of the compact sizes that you showed. With the compact 9mm, I can do more practice for less money and still have a nominally more powerful round. The greater amount of practice makes hitting the target more likely in a self-defense situation.

I'm happy that the gun manufacturers are producing handguns for people who want less recoil than the 9mm has but are otherwise the same platform. For those people, the compact and slightly larger .380s have value.

For me, there's no point in using the .380 ACP round unless I need a gun that is smaller than the smallest 9mm guns.

I made a comment to Pete from Doublefeed channel a few weeks ago. Talking about Gunstreamer not YouTube as I won’t go to YouTube. He has the best rifles and you by far have the best pistols on this platform. Great video, always look forward to seeing more from you.
